Recent Townsend guest reviews

Thank you for letting stay at your cabin for the second time it’s always very clean love that you’re always updating appliances and other things around the property. Very relaxing time the cabin was extremely clean upon arrival !Love sitting by the water was visited by the ducks every day.Far enough out to feel secluded but close enough if you need to run to town .The king size bed is very comfortable!! Love this cabin and will definitely be back …Thanks xxxxx xxxxx

This unit was clean and comfy close to the venue we were attending. I enjoyed sitting by the river watching our feathered friends. Was a very relaxing peaceful time.
Ethel W. | May 2024
It was a nice place to stay. Nice full kitchen (we only used coffee pot). Bath was small and I would have liked more counter space. All in all, it was a fine place to stay for a couple of days.
